There lay their idol, Gilbert Perreault. after he collided with team-mate Mike Robitaille. who had been dealt a solid check by Brian Spencer ot New York Islanders with live minutes gone in the se- cond period. The smooth-skating Buffalo Sabres' centre had to be re- moved on a stretcher. And, for about the next eight weeks, the Sabres will be without Perreault, who suffered a broken left leg in the Sabres' 5-2 win over the Islanders. Elsewhere, New York Rangers were hammered 7-2 by Pittsburgh Penguins in New York.

Detroit Red Wings nipped Los Angeles Kings 3-2 and St. Louis Blues tied Chicago 4-4 There were divergent opinions on how Perreault's injury occurred. Linemate Richard Martin said he felt it happened because Perreault's skate caught in the ice while Robitaille said he thought the leg broke when he fell on his team-mate Perreault and Gerry Meehan scored within the space of 14 seconds for the Sabres in the first period to offset goals by Lome Henning and Andre St. Laurent. Jim Lorentz scored what proved to be the winning goal at 4.28 of the middle period, 34 seconds before Perreault's accident In New York, the Penguins held a 54 lead at the end of the first period and drove starting goalie Gilles Villemure from the game. Al McDonough and Lowell MacDonald scored a pair of goals for the Penguins, who had just scored 19 times in seven games this season before their visit to New York. In Chicago, a goal by Mike Pelyk at of the third period gave the Leafs their draw with the Black Hawks.

Nightingale toast of the town TURCOTTE TO TRAVEL PIETERMARITZBURG, South Africa (Reuter) Ron Turcotte of Grand Falls, N.B., will be among 12 top jockeys from seven countries who will ride in a race for three-year-olds Nov. 17, it was announced Sunday. By JOHN SHORT CALGARY (CP) Lynn Nightingale of Ottawa achiev- ed the transition from schoolgirl to champion Satur- day night before about fans in the free-skating seg- ment of women's individual competition in the first annual Skate Canada event. A fall as Miss Nightingale completed a difficult triple salchow took little from per- formance. She streamed past Jean Scott of Renfrew, Scotland, who had led after two rounds, and second-place Barbara Terpenning of North Vancouver, B.C. Miss Scott sagged to third place in the overall standings and Miss Terpenning. held on to second. Canadians won five medals in the three days of formal competition, paced by Toller Cranston of Toronto and Miss Nightingale. Ron Shavers of Cambridge. Ont.. was a close second to Cranston in men's combined standings while Louise and Barry Soper of Vancouver earned silver medals tor se- cond place in the dance com- petition. Miss Scott finished fifth in the 1973 world championships at Bratislava, Yugoslavia, while Miss Nightingale finish- ed 10th The Ottawa youngster was particularly brilliant un- der the pressure caused bv her seventh-place finish Thursday in compulsory figures. She said after her victory that the fall had not affected her. "I thought it was better to trv something like that here, m an invitational meet, rather than in a national competition or something like the world's championships." The closest race in the com- petition. which involved almost 50 representatives of 10 countries, occurred in men's singles where Shavers spotted Cranston a big early lead in compulsory figures and then sliced away at the margin. Shavers was named first by a majority of judges in Satur- day's free skating and Friday's compulsory skating programs. Free skating accounted for 50 per cent of the total points, with 30 per cent provided for compulsory figures and the remainder for the short com- pulsory skate Cranston said he expects to improve as the 1974 world championships at Munich draw near Shaver earned extra points Saturday in artistic impres- sion but Cranston reduced his edge somewhat with a fine showing in technical merit. Each drew a perfect 6 0 score in technical merit from one of nine judges and Cranston had a slight margin among the remaining eight. The Sopers finished second behind the ultimate winners in all three segments of dance Green and Glynn Watts of Streatham. England Inna Moiseeva and Andrei Minikov of Russia finished third Barbara Berezowski and David Porter of Toronto were seventh and Debbie and John Dowdmg of Oakville. Ont.. eighth in the dance com- petition.

"Certainly we'll miss cam- paigning such a wonderful horse, I'm certainly glad it's over." said Penny Tweedy, owner of Secretariat. Secretariat went out a big winner, boosting his earnings by to bring his bankroll to the fourth best ever for a thoroughbred.
